Lowering of the Washington State and United States Flags



I hereby direct that Washington State and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff Tuesday, July 26, 2011, in memory of U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Wyatt A. Goldsmith, 28, of Colville, who died July 15 of injuries sustained in Afghanistan when his patrol received rocket-propelled grenade fire.


Please notify your staff and all of your field offices and facilities around the state.


Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business Tuesday, or first thing Wednesday morning, July 27.


Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.


Please call (360) 902-0383 if you have any questions about this flag lowering.
